Legitimate Question?

You play a heart slam needing to pick up the whole trump suit:

KT9xx

Axxx

to make it.

You start with the ace and your RHO contributes the J.

Your opponents are a long time partnership and play together frequently online. You believe they have played many thousands of boards together. Is it legitimate to ask your LHO how often, in his estimate, his partner plays the jack from QJ tight?

In fact, at the table I asked LHO that question and the answer was "We just play bridge; it's a silly question".

I'm interested in hearing interpretations of relevant laws that address this issue, and, if necessary, how the laws might be altered to clarify this and similar situations.
